The Book of Negroes – Lawrence Hill

The Book of Negroes:  A NovelThe Book of Negroes: A Novel by Lawrence Hill
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book, the main character was very interesting and the story of her travels out of Africa to the South Carolina, then to New York and onto Nova Scotia were quite fascinating. I did find myself getting a little impatient to finish the last quarter of the novel where Aminata travels back to Africa. I think by that point so much had happened in her life and with her family that continuing on started to stretch credulity for me a bit.

Other than that small complaint, I thought this was an extremely well written book and would recommend it to anyone.
